institute says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last fiscal year and that amount, get this, is more than the budgets than all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. nonpartisan think tank focuses on global immigration issues and the report found that u.s. government has spent more than $187 billion on immigration enforcement laws since 1986 and since then, there have been more immigration-related criminal prosecutions than cases generated by the justice department. npi concludes because of the money spent the actions taken and the case volume, it is fair to say the obama administration has made immigration enforcement its highest criminal law enforcement priority. >>> the administration's economic priority right now is the raising of the debt ceiling. u.s. has gotta lift it by the end of february or early march or else it will default on its fiscal obligations. this should be a routine exercise but republicans once again are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage in exchange for spending cuts which happened back in august of

that the bauks fundamentally shifted its poll di-- obama administration fundamentally shifted its policy by moving away from targeting unauthorized immigrants through high-profile rates to targeting actually employers who hire unauthorized workers. since june -- since january of 2009, i.c.e. has audited more than 8,000 employers. it has debarred 726 companies and imposed about $88 million in criminal monetary fines on employers. a very significant -- and the last thing on the work force that i will touch on is there has been an increased effort on the labor standards enforcement in our country. we all know that labor standards enforcements always takes less priority in our overall enforcement system. there are only 1,100 inspectors in the division to monitor about more than 7.5 million u.s. business establishments. that obviously is not going to do the job as efficiently as one would like to. therefore, the department of labor has more recently gone into more smarter, more targeted enforcement of those employers who habitually violate the laws on the books on labor standards. and in indu

. >> this is interesting. it is certainly true that the obama administration has been among the harshest on an external whistle-blowers. however, the obama administration has been -- especially this new administration which managed to cram through a whistle-blower protection act and expand it for government whistleblowers, is offering protections they have not had for decades. so he wants them, whistle- blowers, to be able to work without retaliation within the system. he is very much opposed to information being released willy-nilly by people inside that just ended all over the world. we interviewed assange right after the wikileaks issue, he believes that all information should be there, regardless of the possibility of innocent victims. he is a person who believes that, no matter what the consequences are, the information should be out there. a lot of the wikileaks stuff was pretty niggly stuff, people having affairs or whatever. some of it was big stuff, for sure. some of it was important stuff. the stuff that made a difference when people knew about it was when he partnered with a guardian, a bunc
? did you distrust key members of the obama administration when it came to their policy in dealing with afghanistan? >> i think what's most important is we spent a lot of timesharing information to try to build trust. trust kochl comes with time, wi cooperation and with compromise. i think that's what we worked through. >> with all due respect, you didn't answer my question. did you distrust key members of the administration in with respect to their handling of the war in afghanistan? >> yeah. i still believe that the most important thing we can do is build that trust. over time that's -- >> you're being a good soldier he here. i want to take you back to the "rolling stone" magazine that led to your resignation from your post. there were several demeaning comments attributed to your staff members and even to you. was that article accurate? was that the way you and your staff members felt about those people? >> it's interesting. in my book i outline that in about a page and a half in a 400-page book because that's the level of its importance. there was a lot of things in leadership
the obama administration's done a good job with the rebalancing on most of the aspects to it. they've done a lot of little things, and they tie them together with some good rhetoric and diplomacy. but the individual pieces of rebalancing are actually quite modest. and i'm glad for that, because i don't want to see us go towards excessive confrontation. in the sense that i think we have very strong allies in the region, we have a lot of economic b and strategic strengths that china does not have, for example, our population trajectory, for example the opennesses of our political system sw what that does to make the investment economy a haven for dollars. there are a lot of ways you can go down the list, and when you compare the two countries, you see a lot of american strengths that are enduring, and when you with mention our allies on top of that -- which dick did earlier -- there's no particular reason for us to think that we need to shrink back. but i would worry a lot about potential disputes that are unnecessary over issues like the islands. and let me give you one very concrete exampl

decides what the administration is going to do on the issue. president obama is pretty clearly committed to prevent iran from getting the bomb and ultimately accountable. i'm not so sure that we should worry that much those who may support president obama that hagel s somehow going to slow down the whole debate or prevent a credible threat of force. obama gets to make that call. i think it is healthy that senator hagel would introduce new perspectives and genuine concern about where this war could go if we choose to start it. not that we have any good options in iran. he could be a useful voice at a time when a lot of washington seems to be developing a conventional wisdom we may have to strike iran pretty soon. >> shepard: we will see how brutal the confirmation hearing is and if he is weakened afterwards. thank you. >> thank you. >> shepard: the law make ares have two months now you to reach a deal on raising the debt limit or the government could start defaulting on its loans. that could put the entire world economy into a tail spin analysts tell us. republicans and democrats say they

administration. i think obama gives him a lot of cover on this issue. i think democrats would call him a pariah if it's happening at a different time. but on the other stuff, israel thing, the views on israel, the views on hamas and previous statements i find to be fairly unpalatable but i think republicans feel the same way about obama's, you know, policies so there's no real surprise there and that's why i just don't think as valid as the inquiries are and the confirmation process is rigorous, i just don't think he's going to not be confirmed here. >> right. >> we'll ask the questions and move on. >> right. well to your point of sort of politics of how it went down and barney frank is a great case in point. >> yes. >> when hagel was floated as maybe the nominee, they said they're not comfortable with him and now that he is the nominee, barney frank said, actually, i do support him. >> of course. >> i think it's worth pointing out that the president by having this leak and letting him twist in the wind for a while, the left would have closed ranks and come behind him much more quickly announce
